The mansion offers a library-screening room, guest suite with a private entrance on the home’s main level, a library, card room, gym and an additional private guest apartment above the garage. A veranda that overlooks the city skyline in the master suite. Outside resides a swimming pool and pool house with kitchenette and sunken tennis courts.

The home was a popular location for many of the era’s Hollywood stars including Clark Gable and Charlie Chaplin, and used by Goldwyn for a few of his films, which include Wuthering Heights and The Best Years of Our Lives, a 1946 Oscar-winner.
